Exclamation Calling all in Maryland...Emergency Wrench session!!!

I'm working on getting a new clutch from one of the vendors ASAP...(funding a SBC will take a few days...(Thanks NMCRS!))

I need someone to volinteer their place to do a clutch install. I feel like an idiot asking but I don't have the right tools or the space to rip it all apart. If your in the Baltimore area and have a spot where 4-5 guys can rip into my truck and replace the clutch assembly, holler. I'll be providing the beer and probably lunch.

Also, if you would like to volinteer to assist in the install, post it up here.

The date: There is no set date or time for this. It will be up to whom ever lends us the space. I can do it starting on the 2nd of August through the 7th. I HAVE to be back here no later than the evening of the 7th b/c I have work on the morning of the 8th.

So...this is the gist:
1. I need a place (with the right tools) to pull a tranny and replace a clutch
2. I need a list of folks who would like to help.
3. Has to be between the 2nd and 7th of August.


Thanks Y'all!

Ditty,

I have the perfect spot and would love to help a brother out, but I will be out of town during most of that time span. If you don't find anything by the 4th, pm me and I may be able to work something out on the 6th or 7th.

I have a full shop with air tools, jacks, parts washer, torch, welder, etc. and we also have plenty of auto parts places nearby that are capable of supplying just about anything that you could need in a pinch. I will return Sunday August 5 but it will be late in the day. The 6th and 7th are all I have to offer.

I will be working upstairs from the shop, but you and the boys are welcome to use it. I have a full time mechanic that is in the shop most of the time. I can't officially offer his services, but if you get in a bind he will be there.

Actually, give me a call at 443-955-4823 and we can talk about details. The shop is located in Abingdon, MD just off or Route 40.

It's close to Dave too... I work Sunday - Thursday from 2:45-11pm and I've already got 5 days off in August so I don't know if I'll be able to do anything. I will definitely get up early, come down and see if I can lend a hand!

OK y'all....I JUST got off the phone with Larry at DPP. My clutch is in the mail this afternoon! So...if all goes well, I'll have it Friday afternoon-ish...(or sooner).

Also, some plans on the wrench session have changed b/c, well, frankly, my schedule SUCKS!

SO, I'm going to HAVE to do the install on Friday Afternoon through Saturday. Why, b/c on Monday and Tues I have to do some B.S. Navy crap and I can't be up North of Baltimore...have to be on base.

I'll be doing it at the On-Base Hobby shop here at Ft. Meade. If anyone is wanting to help, you will have to meet me and come on base with me. Sorry for any inconvenience....but this is going to be the best way to get it done.

On Friday afternoon, I have one person who is willing to help...but Sat I'm all alone.

Thanks for everyone that offered their help and/or facilities. Just the offer speaks volumes about your character. I DO have to thank Larry at DPP for his EXCELLENT customer service and help. He assisted in making a decision about which clutch I needed and even offered to ship it w/out getting payed right away (as long as he had proof I HAD the $$$) to help a fellow .Orger out. Thanks everyone.

If you do want to help on Fri or Sat. PM me and I'll get you my Phone #.

Possibly...We'll see. I can do the Nitrous install anywhere. Heck, I could do it the day of the event if I HAD to. (That wouldn't be any fun though.) If I get the clutch in and all in a decent time frame, would ya'll be cool for a Sat Night wrench session to Nitrous my Truck? (This is just an idea att...Clutch goes first!)
